Help me identify this San Francisco brownie

A few years ago, I ate an incredibly moist, decadent brownie from San Francisco. I was never in SF - the brownies were shipped to my landlady, who then shared some with me. Help me figure out which magical bakery this was. [more inside]

Allergy-friendly bakery in central/south Indiana?

We're looking for a bakery that can make us a small cake or a small batch of cupcakes with a mind to allergy restrictions (nuts and dairy are the major concerns, but there are a few other items we'd like to avoid as well) somewhere in the vicinity of Indianapolis or Bloomington, IN. Having someone deliver to those areas might also be an option if the price isn't astronomically high. Google turns up one bakery that can accommodate the dairy restrictions, but not the nut restrictions. Any recommendations, or do I need to get out the spray bottle and apron and figure out how to do this myself...?

The Cheesecake Factory at Home.

I have a great cheesecake recipe. I want to bake it for a small profit or no profit, mostly for fun and to see what it's like to run a business. It does not have to be an official LLC or anything, but can be. What do I need to know to run this business? [more inside]

NYC Bakery Filter

I'm here in NYC and searching for a bakery that I came across on a previous visit while wandering around the city right before a hurricane. I'm pretty sure it was in Midtown or the UWS. What's special about this bakery is that everything they sell was made that day, and what's left over at the end of the day is always donated. Based on that description, can you help me? All my extensive searching has yielded no matches.

Recipes For Stale Bread

I have an endless supply of baguette and ciabatta, thanks to my current brokeness and my teenage background as a dumpster-diving crust punk (pun intended). It's preservative free, high quality french bakery bread that is about 12 hours old when I acquire it. It's already a little stale, and moulders within two days. I'm looking for tips on storage and for about a million recipes I can utilize to use it all up. [more inside]

Need to deliver baked goods to a friend, in Toronto, at night

A friend of mine, who lives in East York (Toronto), is working insanely long hours. I want to send him baked goods from a great bakery (since he wants cookies really badly). Can you help me find a bakery that will deliver to him outside of regular office hours (possibly faaar outside regular hours), and that I won't have to go to in order to set this all up--since I'm in Ottawa?

3/8" to 1/2" Berkel (MB) Bread slicer change in NYC?

I may be purchasing a used Berkel bread slicer — the model is MB (it may be MBSS, since the whole model is stainless steel). It currently has a 3/8" slice size. I need it changed to a 1/2" slice size. Do you have a recommendation for a service center in or around NYC that could do the job well without breaking the bank? [more inside]

What is being a baker or sous-chef like?

What has been your experience working as a baker, sous-chef, pastry chef, or on prep staff in a bakery or restaurant? What was the job like? The hours? What skills did you need to know before being hired, and what was OK for you to learn on the job? Did you have any significant professional training before beginning, or was it all self-taught? I have discovered a love of baking and cooking, and am considering going into the field for a couple of years. Is this feasible to do so without culinary school? [more inside]

I need a birthday cake (in London)!

I need a birthday cake for Friday (Sat morning at the latest). Doesn't have to be anything exciting, just something that can feed about 20 people, and says 'Happy Birthday' on it. I live in London - where on earth would I go to get such a thing? I guess I could try large supermarkets, but there aren't many in central London, and it would be nice to get something 'handmade', by a decent bakery. All suggestions gratefully recieved!
